Designed for applications requiring high flow in an extremely compact package, especially in the medical, automotive, and business equipment markets, the new durable, oil-less Model 1420 pump achieves higher flows than conventional standard diaphragm pumps of the same physical size. The pump measures 3.41 inches long × 1.16 inches wide × 2.96 inches high, and weighs .485 lbs. Flow is rated at 6.0 to 11.0 lpm, when the heads are in parallel configuration, and up to 5.5 lpm in series configuration. The maximum pressure rating is 1 bar, and the maximum vacuum rating is 23 inches Hg. The Model 1420 pump is available in both 12 and 24V dc versions and incorporates long-life EPDM (ethylene-propylene rubber) diaphragms and valves.
